 SSANU, NASU warning strike ends after seven days

Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) ended their seven-day warning strike on Sunday.

This was contained in a circular to branch chairmen at public universities all over the country on Sunday.

According to the circular, The SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, directed SSANU and NASU members to resume work from Monday, March 25, 2024.

“Consequently, you are hereby informed that the seven-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, 24th March 2024 and normal work will resume on Monday, 25th March 2024,” the circular partly read.

SSANU and NASU assured their commitment to ongoing efforts in securing withheld salaries. 

They pledged to maintain "meaningful engagement with the relevant Government Agencies in both Executive and Legislative Arms" and promised to communicate the next course of action to their members.

Recall that the two unions began a seven-day warning strike on Monday, March 18, 2024 over withheld salaries with workers in registry, bursary, works and maintenance, security, and students’ affairs withdrawing their services.

Both SSANU and NASU are protesting withheld salaries by the Federal Government. The two unions berated the Federal Government for paying withheld salaries to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) while neglecting the non-academic unions

SSANU and NASU accused the Federal Government of unfair treatment and discrimination by failing to pay them like their academic counterparts.
